Jennifer Orsi named Sarasota Herald-Tribune editor & regional Florida editor

Veteran Florida newspaper editor Jennifer Orsi is joining the USA TODAY Network as executive editor of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune and Florida regional editor, overseeing 18 Gannett-owned daily newspapers in the state. 

Orsi, 54, spent three decades at the Tampa Bay Times, starting as a reporter in the Brandon bureau and rising to become the first woman appointed the newspaper’s sole managing editor.  

Since 2018, Orsi has been the director of marketing content and communications for an asset management company. She is excited to work in the news industry again.  

“I had missed the sense of purpose that I had when I worked in daily journalism and the people I spoke with at Gannett really emphasized their desire to focus on high quality journalism for the readers in Sarasota and the readers across the state of Florida,” Orsi said.
